Subject: RE: Mark Radcliffe replaces Mike Harding-Radio 2 Folk
As a lover of both folk & country music, I was appalled by the BBC choice to appoint Bob Harris to MC the country show years ago. I do not listen to it much nowadaysdue to the material chosen by him.
I fear it will be the same with Radcliffe, what I saw from the Cambridge festival did not impress me at all. He doesn't seem to know his subject.
Mike Harding, I'll miss you.
